    A Classic Horror Story

    The film's similarity to many horror films is on purpose. And it gives the film a vibe of being defensive. As if when someone points out that it lacks of originality, they can just say it's part of the plan.

    "Our characters even said multiple times in the film that the film copies other films and it's so lame lol," say the film, imaginatively.

    Feels kind of tacky, passive-aggressive, and trying too hard.

    But that's not it. It lacks of…

    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

    ★★★★★

    Michael Goldenberg x David Yates are perfect. Why did they bring Steve Kloves back...

  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    Potentially, it could be the most satisfying HP movie. In matter of fact, this one is the worst.

  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    ★★★★

    'Harry Potter' took a turn into darker mood starting from here.

    I had forgotten almost completely about the movie so I rewatched it with expectation since Alfonso Cuaron took the helm.

    His direction is very impressive it paved the way for the sequels and makes us shrug the nonsense and the plot holes.

    Without this one, HP might look very different.

  • The Unholy
  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

    Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

    ★★★★

    Your childhood movie is perfect until you rewatch it when you're a 26 yo adult.

    I enjoyed my time laughing and joking and wondering at every single scene, line, character building in this movie with my sister:

    Harry Potter's groundless accusation at Snape made me snap (pun intended).

    Harry Potter spilled the secret Hagrid told him to keep made him -10 points.

    Hagrid, why do you let a 13 yo join you when you do a top secret business in…

  • Beyond Evil

    Beyond Evil

    ★★★½

    Enjoyable and intriguing. I prefer and recommend Beyond Evil to Mouse any time. Mid story I feel it's still trapped in the K-drama unrealistic tendency to draw small universe and rigid characters web where problems+ solutions revolve solely around the characters. Some of its scenes and resolutions are still very much 'deus ex machina'. And the ending to its mystery is not as satisfying but I have to say (lanjut kalo ga males)

  • Mouse

    Mouse

    ★★★

    Seru sih ya nontonnya tapi ya kuat2in aja kalo kadang pengen marah saking universe-nya ga masuk akal.

    Pada akhirnya sih emang simpati sama Lee Seung Gi berkarisma sekali auranya ya, tapi aku tuh bingung tujuan series ini apakah encourage orang buat simpati sama pembunuh berantai......... Karena kalo iya ya aneh ya ajshshdiaj.

  • Strangers From Hell

    Strangers From Hell

    Goal seo moon jo kan mau turn jungwoo jadi psikopat sebagai karya terbaiknya, tapi cara dia ngelakuinnya tuh lame banget gitu. Masa tiap kali ada kesempatan, jungwoo selalu dipepet terus dikasih ceramah sok misterius yang intinya "Tuh kamu pengen marah kan? Udah keluarin aja". Udah kayak netizen deh dia.

    Would prefer Home Sweet Home more sih.

  • Us and Them

    Us and Them

    ★★★★★

    I crawled inside someone's head and watched their handpicked memories that they replay. After two hours I managed to escape but the trauma's been done. Excuse me, I have to watch something else to recover.
